    Green Shades Inc. (GSI) sells hammocks; variable costs are $75 each, and the hammocks are sold for
    $125 each. GSI incurs $250,000 of fixed operating expenses annually.


    a. Determine the sales volume in units and dollars required to attain a $50,000 profit. Verify your answer
    by preparing an income statement using the contribution margin format.

    b. GSI is considering implementing a quality improvement program. The program will require a $10
    increase in the variable cost per unit. To inform its customers of the quality improvements, the
    company plans to spend an additional $20,000 for advertising. Assuming that the improvement
    program will increase sales to a level that is 3,000 units above the amount computed in Requirement
    a, should GSI proceed with plans to improve product quality? Support your answer by
    preparing a budgeted income statement.

    c. Determine the new break-even point in units and sales dollars as well as the margin of safety percentage,
    assuming that the quality improvement program is implemented.
